Data management plan

A data management plan (DMP) is required for all research projects. You should produce this at the start of the project and keep it under review throughout the project.

DMPonline has useful templates and guidance, including an Edge Hill template. Sign in with your University credentials to access the Edge Hill template and guidance. You can also obtain feedback on your plan from the Research Data Manager by clicking on ‘Request Feedback’.
